As part of the planning-council meeting
last week, some participants were wondering what the magnitude of the Eclipse
translations have been.
I agreed to provide some numbers, from
our IBM experts that have been involved in this work in the past and have
some estimates for Europa.
Keep in mind the following are only
estimates, just to illustrate the relative sizes of the projects and efforts
Plus, don't forget, there are many "multipliers"
in the whole process. First, there's the
languages themselves ... 23 languages
for Callisto. And, there are many efforts besides translating, per se.
A number of
"verification" and "test"
phases to be sure all is correctly translated and correctly displayed (and
the quality of Eclipse maintained).
Hope this aides your planning efforts
and the call for Friday.
The following Europa projects had been translated
in Callisto. Only a delta translation
is needed. Just to give you an idea of the
size of the projects, some whole project word counts are also listed. Europa Project Est. Whole Project PII Word
